Nursing Toddler causing annovulatory cycles, clomid?

My 20 mo nurses on demand (about 6 times per 24 hours) and I'm not at all ready to wean at this point-long journey to get here! I have been temping and charting the past few months and have had irregular cycles with several days of positive fertility signs (positive opks, cm, cp, etc) followed by my period and no change in temp that would indicate O. I'm researching and considering a low dose of clomid to nudge my body into Oing. We are not TTC yet but hopefully in a few months. We have to use donor sperm due to dh's low count and got dd with an at home IUI So we want to be sure I will O or it will be throwing $750 away. I am wondering if anyone has any insight on using clomid when it appears your body is trying to O but not quite there. Or any other suggestions that don't involve weaning at this time.

Just some thoughts.

Clomid is actually a pretty strong drug. You really can't use it multiple months in a row. It is known to dry out your cervical mucous and thin your lining. With poor cervical mucous, a home insemination has a poor chance if working. A standard IUI bypasses the cervical mucous, so has a better chance.

Your best option would be to contact an RE and discuss your options. They can test your prolactin levels, too, to see if the nursing is even causing the problems.

Good luck.

I know someone whose motto is that an ultrasound to confirm you are about to ovulate is cheaper than a vile of sperm. Can't hurt to confirm you are ovulating and save some money. A trigger shot can help you ovulate too if you are producing follicles.

Thank you for the thoughts. I know all that about clomid. Unfortunately at this time we can't afford appointments with an RE as we would have to pay everything out of pocket. We are considering using clomid on our own, which I know many people consider dangerous but we also do other things considered dangerous to many (at home IUI, free birth, etc). It looks like I need to do some more research. Thanks again!
